Hybrid Bike and Bar Tape
So, I have a trek 7.2fx.
My origin8 bolt on drop bars and fizik bar tape has shipped and is sitting here.
My trek 7.2fx grips are terrible IMO. They're constantly turning in all directions, not much of an ergonomic feel, etc.
So I had originally planned to just scoot the grips in, bolt on the outside, and tape the bars.
Then I though, I'll tape over the poor grips too!
Now I think.... Remove the grips completely, bolt on, and tape the drops and also the bar where said grips were.
I bought the bolt on drops to give more hand positions. After 30-40 miles my hands were numb and hurt. Just uncomfortable after 2 hours.
I'm new to cycling, so if this is a bad idea TELL ME. can you see anything wrong with this? Thanks in advance.
